Tiny Bitey Cow Found
•••
Girl?
Answers to no one
Traditional black and white cow-coloring
Likes pets and canned tuna
Very smol and bitey

Found in the Fort Caroline-Merrill area last night. I've seen it wander through our backyard and driveway a couple times this week so I assumed it lived nearby, but my SISTER took it upon herself to take it in.

We plan on checking for a microchip in the next few days and reaching out to the Humane Society.

I've got a big ass dog. I do not want this cat. Please help me find owner or home thx

My mom bought me a #cake 😭
•••
6 months ago, on Saturday, March 24, a team of brilliant and courageous individuals cut me open in an attempt to prolong my life.

I've tried reading the procedural notes from the operation, and I can't get get more than three words through a sentence without having to look something up. For the parts that I am able to understand though, my palms sweat, my mouth goes dry, and I can feel my heart beating in my throat. I get shaken up.

I get shaken because I think about who and what I almost left behind, and I tear up. Like my mom, and cake with frosting that's an inch thick, and walks with my dog, and deep breaths and then I'm #grateful. So very very grateful... #donatelife #transplant #lungs #lungiversary #cysticfibrosis #awareness #motivationmonday #mondayfunday #dogood

I took this cause I liked how it looked, but then I started thinking...
•••
This treehouse has survived every #hurricane Jacksonville has seen since 2002. Our neighbor's son helped build it; unfortunately he passed due to an accident in 2003. He was 16.

He was also an #organdonor. I've always thought of him when I looked at it, but since receiving a #transplant, it's taken on new significance. He survives through this treehouse the same way he survives through the organs he donated and subsequent lives he saved.

It is a relic of a life lived giving; the site of numerous, golden childhood memories; it is an unmarked monument to his memory. I may have only lived across the street from him for a couple of years, but I also kinda grew up with him anyway.

On behalf of my family and everyone else you helped, thank you for your choice to give, Jayce. Your parents continue to be my favorite neighbors, and your mom makes AMAZING mac and cheese.

And thank you to every community who has lost a loved one who was an organ donor. Your positive values and influence is reflected in their choice.

Two people died yesterday after receiving double lung transplants for CF. They were 22 and 21 respectively, and lived on opposite sides of the country. I followed their transplant stories with hope. Like many, I was rooting for them. Like a few, I've been through that they went through. I want to remember them. Storm and Claire, 9/2/18

I call this photo series "Failed Attempts at Beach Selfies featuring Dog"
•••
First time I've been to the #beach since #transplant AND the first time Beowulf had been to the beach since he was a wee pup (so like 7 years). I wore a LOT of sun block and didn't submerge my face, per my doc's recommendations. Don't want to risk skin cancer or infections from weird ocean germs or nothin. 🤢

It was a good time! One I could have missed if someone hadn't agreed to be an organ donor. 😊

"So Morgan, what have you been up to?"
"Oh, the usual stuff: drinking coffee, chillin with friends, talking to highschool kids about their internal organs" ...hopefully none of the parties involved with this decision come to regret it 😜

TFW when you're proud of your sister's #art but threatened by her #talent/#skills
•••
While I was still recovering in the #hospital in the days immediately following my #surgery, Matt and Marcy, the wonderful owners behind Sipper's, we're some of the first #friends to come check in on me.

The side effects of the new drugs I was taking coupled with the drama of the situation made that a wildly stressful and emotional time for me. Probably the most in my life thus far.

Small gestures of support--texts, phone calls--hit me real hard. So an in-person visit?? Forget about it. I cried. And I still get choked up thinking about it if I'm not careful 😂

ANYWAY. Knowing how I felt about their support, my sister surprised Marcy (and myself, actually) with this drawing as a token of appreciation. Yeah I'm  bragging a little cause I'm #proud 😋

If you're in the St. John's Town Center area, stop by for a look and a cup of #coffee!

Post Lung Tx Update, Day 94: Nose-Throat-Tube-Thing #Selfie
•••
Today I'm reminded how much I enjoy tubes being shoved into my body.

This device is supposed to measure the amount of acid my stomach produces or something; I don't remember all the details, I was gagging and stuff, so I missed the finer points.

But if I'd known this was gonna happen when I woke up this morning, I would have considered faking my death/leaving the state.

Lord help me if I sneeze.. #CysticFibrosis #Awareness #Lungs #Transplant #DonateLife #Hospital

Post Lung Tx Update, Day 93
•••
SO. 93 days ago, some really smart people drugged me, sawed through my ribs, cut out and removed two heavily damaged major organs, and put in two very similar, healthier versions obtained from the conscious donation of another living person, who *most likely* met an unexpected and untimely death.
•••
It's a significant day for my Transplant Team because if my tests and everything come up Millhouse, they're not gonna need to see me for another 90 days.
•••
Which is in turn significant for me, because I've had appointments at Mayo at least once a week (up to 4 times a week, and 6 times in a day) for the last 10 weeks since my release from the #hospital.
•••
The "90 day free trial" is an industry standard in the Lung Tx biz, from what I understand. For other patients, it marks the day they're allowed to leave the city the transplant center is located in and go home, if they temporarily relocated for the surgery.
•••
Personally, I'm treating it like my "first 100 days," and trying to assess: am I a better person than I was 100 days ago? Am I fulfilling on all the promises I made to everyone, including myself, about what I'd do if/once I got a transplant? •••
Plus, a mini #existentialcrisis with a a tiny dash of #survivorsremorse is a great way to suppress your appetite for early labs 👌
